    I have been working at Ferrandino & Son part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They give you quite a bit of scheduling flexibility which is helpful as a single parent. If I need assistance with a project, I can ask one of my co-workers as I know they’re more than willing to help me.

    Cons

    Not much downtime which is both good and bad. Look forward to upcoming season where volumes should decline some.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    I have been working at Ferrandino & Son full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Massive boost in morale since VP got moved to another position, and Senior Director left. The new and remaining Directors are approachable and actually know what they are doing! They have brought back the team environment that has been missing for the last couple years!

    Cons

    Inexperienced mid-level management. There was so much turnover under the old regime that employees who weren't ready were promoted to fill the gaps. Most are ok, but some lack knowledge and experience. Working for someone who is learning on the job can be difficult. Job is taxing and difficult at times, but that's the nature of this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Train your mid-level managers. Don't look back, you are headed in the right direction.

    I have been working at Ferrandino & Son part-time

    Pros

    Work hours consistently are around 40 per week, and I never have any issues with my check. Management listens to feedback and makes changes to departments in a positive way. Things have been getting better since I started working here.

    Cons

    Days can be challenging because of constantly changing projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep projects more consistent and reward hard-working employees. More meetings and paying closer attention to employee personalities could make for better teams.

    I have been working at Ferrandino & Son part-time

    Pros

    I got 4 weeks PTO after a year in addition to a much better salary than similar jobs. The health coverage is good and they treat you like a valued employee. Managers are there to help when needed and communicate well.

    Cons

    The training takes a long time to finish and can get a little boring

    Advice to Management

    Make the environment more engaging and do more team building exercises.

    I have been working at Ferrandino & Son full-time

    Pros

    The workplace is just fantastic. The bathrooms are always spotless when I go to use them. There's even a small gym and it can be easy for it to feel like a home away from home. The expectations of managers aren’t crazy either so that helps.

    Cons

    Some employees don’t work well here. For whatever reason, there are a few that don’t do their fair share. It then requires the rest of us to do what that person didn’t and catch up to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like a lot could be solved if there was a better employee review system. This would get rid of the bad employees so you would increase productivity by replacing the bad workers with good ones, and keep the good ones happy because they don’t have to deal with extra work from bad employees.

    I worked at Ferrandino & Son full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    this company will treat you fairly, CEO is a stand up guy, and fruit/pretzels on Fridays. comprehensive training.

    Cons

    not too flexible with time off. also there are a lot of cliques and special clubs - mostly management but also on the floor. training was great but when I got to my team barely anyone spoke to me, as if they were OK without me.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell management to make sure that everyone is doing the work at this job. don't have the managers giving More work to people who are already super busy. there are some workers there who aren't really working very much, while some of us were extremely busy. I don't need to be recognized, but please give these lazier people some of your "special projects" and please PAY YOUR CONTRACTORS.
